  1. Another new Gillig in Service: 4169. Updated LFS Novas in Service: 9907, 9910, 9916, 9923-9924.
  2. Gillig 4139 has had it's pink wrap removed, it's back in it's I-Ride scheme. Several of the 30 Foot Gillig's have returned to Albany garage, I can confirm 3101 & 3104. The only 99xx Novas that I seen active recently are: 2207, 9910, 9923-9924.
  3. No problem, it's my pleasure to do these updates.
  4. Another New Gillig in service 4168 without license plates.
  5. More New Gilligs in Service: 4162--4167. Guess the 9900 series Nova LFS's are on borrowed time.
  6. 4 New CDTA / Upstate Transit MCI-D4500CT's in Service. 329-332. This explains the older ones that are Out of Service.
  7. MTA Bus Operations: Moves & Transfers

    6084 on it's way down, it was going southbound while i was going northbound on the N.Y. State Thruway around 8am near exit 21 this morning.
  8. There is now a Third--CDTA / Upstate Transit--MCI Out Of Service in the back of Albany garage, unable to see it's number. I thinking that they might have received some new stuff, will try and find out.
  9. MTA Bus Operations: Scrapped Equipment List

    Was curious, are the fare boxes different from New York City Transit and MTA Bus ? I always thought that each depot put in their own fare- boxes. I recall seeing depot initials on the fare-boxes right near their i.d. numbers.
  10. Out of Service News: 2 of the Upstate Transit MCI's are in the back of the Albany Garage in the Out of Service area. They appear to be 314 & 318, not 100% sure of this because their side numbers are above the drivers window are very small and they are not on the roofs either. All of the 3000 series LFS Nova Buses that were out back are gone, not sure where.
  11. All of the Low Floor Nova Buses that were in the back yard @ the Albany Garage are gone. Not sure if the were sold and to whom or what actually happened to them.
  12. MTA Bus Operations: Moves & Transfers

    Yesterday, while traveling Northbound on the N.Y. State Thruway, I saw going southbound around exit 21 at 3pm, were 2 New Flyer Artics, 6058 & 6080.
  13. Gillig # 4139 is painted/wrapped[?] in Pink with grey strips by the rear wheels on each side. Also some of the LFS Novas that were in the back yard of the Albany Garage are gone from there. Not sure if they have been sold or scrapped [ heaven forbid].
  14. More New Buses In Service: New Flyer Artics: 6005-6007 Gillig: 4161
  15. Another New Flyer Artic in Service: 6004. It appears that the 3000 series low floor Novas are Out of Service / In Storage. The only Nova's in service are the 99xx group.
